To delete a SOAP or Encounter Note, you must first unsign it (if signed) and then remove/delete all the diagnostic codes, prescriptions, plans items, and charges in the note. Do this by right-clicking each dx, rx, plan or charge listed within the note and selecting "Remove" or "Delete". You may be required to enter a reason to delete certain items.
Next, from the patient’s dashboard, go to the SOAP/Encounter Notes Block, right-click the title of the desired note you wish to delete and click "Delete SOAP Note".
A confirmation pop-out will open in which you must provide an explanation of why you are deleting the note. Then click "Delete this SOAP Note" to complete the action and delete the note. Deleting a note cannot be undone.
